Measuring 4 9/16" long and weighing a relatively heavy, .8 T. oz., this coffee aka demitasse spoon is an early example of Tiffany's "Chrysanthemum." It is stamped "Tiffany & Co.," "Sterling," "Pat. 1880.," and "M," this last mark dating it to no later than 1891.
Monogrammed "HFS" in a delicate script, it has a bright gold washed bowl, front and back sides. The chrysanthemum motif is abuntantly portrayed on the obverse and reverse of the handle as well as the backside of the bowl.
It is in immaculate condition. There is no evidence this was ever used. Every detail remains crisp and the finish is untouched.
